Original Press Release:



AlfaVap(TM) a Cassette Evaporator for High-Viscosity Products



AlfaVap(TM) is a cassette evaporator for concentrating process liquids that contain dissolved and finely dispersed proteins of animal or fish origin. AlfaVap works on the principle of the rising-film evaporator utilizing forced circulation. In contrast to other evaporators based on this principle, nearly all evaporation takes place within the cassettes.

AlfaVap is suitable for process liquids such as:
ostick water from fishmeal
oglue water from meat by-products
ofish extracts and bouillon products
ocanning cooking water
omeat extracts and bouillon products
ofish or meat-based hydrolysate products
ofish silage products
ogelatin products

As AlfaVap can be effectively cleaned by CIP, it can also be designed for food-grade quality products.

The AlfaVap is a very compact unit available in either standardized or customized models. It offers an overall lower investment cost than traditional shell-and-tube evaporator systems. It can be supplied as a single-stage, two-stage or three-stage evaporator depending on the heating medium, throughput, or concentration requirements of the end product. The AlfaVap is highly automated and achieves high heat transfer coefficients and low fouling which results in extended operating periods between cleanings.

AlvaVap is available in capacities of 2000 to 35,000 lbs per hour (1000 to 16,000 kg/h). Larger customized units are available, if required.
